WASHINGTON, DC: Rep Lauren Boebert has argued that the legal troubles of former President Donald Trump would 'go away' if he decided to "just quit" his presidential race for a second term in the Oval Office, reported Newsweek.

The Colorado congresswoman, who is seeking re-election with Trump's endorsement, made the suggestion on X on Monday, April 15, the first day of the hush money criminal trial against the ex-president.

Trump, who became the first former president to face a criminal trial in US history, is required to be present every day when the Manhattan court is in session. The trial is expected to last for about eight weeks.

"The latest election interference stunt requires DJT [Donald J Trump] to be in court, in person, for a possible 6-8 week trial, keeping him off of the campaign trail," Boebert, a staunch Trump ally, wrote.

"Remember, this trial and all the others would go away if Trump just quit," the GOP lawmaker continued, adding, "But he won't! He's putting his life on the line to fight for you and me. We love you President Trump!"


The GOP presumptive nominee, who has not pleaded guilty to the 34 criminal counts, has called his cases as politically motivated, and brought forward by prosecutors and judges who work for President Joe Biden. He also labeled it as an "assault on America."

Speaking to reporters after the first day of the trial, Trump claimed that Judge Juan Merchan, who is overseeing the trial, might force him to miss his youngest son Barron Trump's graduation, which would take place in May.

After day two of the trial, the court managed to select only seven impartial jurors to decide whether Trump was guilty of covering up a $130,000 hush money payment to adult film actress Stormy Daniels during the final days of his 2016 presidential campaign to stop her from talking about their affair. A 12-member jury panel and six alternates are required for the trial.

Internt mocks Lauren Boebert

Boebert faced intense trolling for arguing Trump quitting the presidential race would stop the trials. Netizens pointed fingers at the criminal cases against her son, who was recently arrested, and her ex-husband.

One user asked, "Don’t you have different criminal trial to worry about? 'Lauren Boebert's 18-year-old son Tyler Boebert arrested, faces five felony charges.'"

"I’d ask where your law degree is from but given your ex husband’s and son’s regular dealings with the authorities I guess osmosis counts…" another user remarked.



A third user added, "No, it really would not. How about you quit and see if it helps your son? Oh wait, that would be ridiculous would it not?" Meanwhile, a fourth response read, "Stop clowning BoBo."

"Your desperation smells really bad, but I'm here for it," another quipped.




Someone else said, "We know you barely earned a GED, but so you can learn, if you are charged with a crime and plead innocent, you go to trial under the rules of the court not yours." Another user added, "You know Boebert is now a synonym for clown."
